Rolls-Royce presented the second generation of Ghost, the brand's new entry-level model. the Ghost is more luxurious than ever and even trumps the Phantom in some ways.
On the outside, the new lights of the Rolls-Royce Ghost stand out. They resemble those of the Phantom, but with a very specific shape. Apart from the doors, hood and trunk, there are no gaps on the bodywork: everything is welded to create a continuous line and at the same time improve the rigidity of the chassis.
The new Rolls-Royce Ghost is fitted with 6.75 V12 engine which produces a power of 571 hp and delivers its maximum torque of 850 Nm at 1,600 rpm to all four wheels. You can sprint to 100 km / h in 4.8 s. The maximum speed is limited to 250 km / h.
Of course, the emphasis is always on comfort and luxury. Goodwood engineers even came up with a real formula to create the car's ultimate soundproofing. It starts with a chassis designed to keep vibrations to a minimum and then add an additional 100 kilograms of insulation.
Parts that produce annoying noise are examined before isolating them and completely redesigning them until they reach an acceptable sound level. Ultimately, the designers achieved a completely silent interior. A silence as it was even perceived as disturbing and disorienting.
In fact, there are many features to mention about the new Ghost. Things like the audio system with 18 speakers, which uses the surface of the ceiling to transform it into a sort of giant sound speaker. Or the illuminated grille, with a brushed look instead of polished to the rear so the light isn't too bright. Things we'd love to see in real life, but it's not yet clear when the new Ghost will appear on our roads.
Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös said: "We found that these clients are showing a marked tendency towards luxury objects that celebrate reduction and restraint -- that don't shout, but rather, whisper"
